Did you know that there are various medications that can be used to treat erection problems? While there is no cure for erectile dysfunction, there are several options available to you that can help you achieve and maintain an erection that is satisfactory for sexual activity. In this article, we will discuss the various treatment options that are available for erectile dysfunction along with the side effects that you need to know about.

Treatments For Erectile Dysfunction

Before we begin, I would like to state that this article is meant to help supplement your general knowledge on the matter and is not meant to replace your doctor’s advice. I have compiled a list of the most common treatments for erectile dysfunction along with what you should know and expect about them.

The first thing you need to know about treating erection problems is that the most desirable treatment for ED is phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5 inhibitors). PDE5 inhibitors delay the breakdown of the second messenger molecule cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), resulting in increased blood flow into the penis and improved stimulation of the genitals. When used in combination with nitrates, the drugs become even more effective.

What Are Beta Blockers?

Before we begin, I would like to state that this article is meant to help supplement your general knowledge on the matter and is not meant to replace your doctor’s advice. Beta blockers are a type of drug that is generally used to treat high blood pressure. They are also prescribed to people who have anxiety disorders and panic attacks. However, many people who use beta blockers have reported experiencing erectile dysfunction as a side effect.

The most common type of beta blocker is bisoprolol (Betaxon). This drug is often used in combination with other medicines, such as nitrates, to treat heart disease. It has recently been reported that there is an increased incidence of this type of reaction in men who use beta blockers. Up to 40% of these individuals experience some degree of erectile dysfunction. If you are one of these people, especially if you are using bisoprolol, you should consult with your doctor about alternative treatments.

Is Sildenafil (Viagra) Safe For Those With Erectile Dysfunction?

Did you know that there is also a prescription medication named sildenafil that can be used to treat erectile dysfunction? It was originally developed as a treatment for pulmonary hypertension, but it has since been approved for use in men with erectile dysfunction. When used in combination with nitrates, the drug becomes even more effective. Sildenafil has been shown in studies to improve erectile dysfunction in men who take the medication.

There are a few important things you need to know about using sildenafil to treat erectile dysfunction. First of all, make sure that your doctor knows that you are using this medication. If you are taking sildenafil and experience any sudden changes in your vision or have trouble breathing, you should consult with your doctor right away. Second, make sure that you take the medication at the recommended dosage. Too much or too little can be harmful, especially if you are already using nitrates to treat your heart disease. Third, make sure that you are not allergic to sildenafil or any of its components. If you have a history of an allergy to any type of medication, you should not use this drug.

Are Penile Prosthetics Safe?

Did you know that there is also a surgical procedure known as a penile prosthetic implant that can be used to treat erectile dysfunction? This procedure is a safer and more effective alternative to some men who suffer from this problem. When used in combination with oral medications or other types of surgery, the implant can increase the size of the penis and help improve sexual function. The most common type of prosthetic implant used to treat erection problems is the inflatable prosthetic implant.

As with any type of surgery, there are risks associated with a penile prosthetic implant. Not only does it involve a medical procedure, but a lot of people who have this surgery also need to take blood thinners after the procedure to prevent blood clots. If you decide to go this route, make sure to consult with your doctor about the risks and benefits before you make a treatment decision.

Should You Try Homework To Fix Your Erectile Dysfunction?

Did you know that there is also a type of treatment known as behavioral therapy that can be used to treat erectile dysfunction? This type of treatment involves the patient doing some type of homework to try and understand the problems he is having with erectile dysfunction. Once the patient is able to identify the triggers for his anxiety attacks and panic attacks, he can begin to successfully combat these problems.

This type of treatment can also involve taking relaxation or anxiety reducing medications along with behavioral therapy. If you decide to try this type of treatment, make sure to consult with your doctor about whether or not it is appropriate for you because there are a lot of things you need to consider before you make a treatment decision.

What About Alternative Treatments For Erectile Dysfunction?

Aside from the medications we’ve discussed so far, there are various other treatments that might be helpful to you in treating your erectile dysfunction. These include the following:

Accupuncture

Did you know that acupuncture is another possible treatment for erectile dysfunction? This therapy involves the stimulation of certain points along the body’s ‘energy meridians’ to treat various ailments. While there is no credible evidence that acupuncture can be used to treat erectile dysfunction, it can help improve sexual function in other ways. For example, it can increase blood flow to the penis, causing an erection. However, due to the lack of evidence, it is not commonly used to treat this problem. If you decide that acupuncture might be an appropriate treatment for you, make sure to consult with your doctor about which points to focus on.

Mental Imagery

Did you know that there is also a type of treatment called mental imagery that can be used to treat erection problems? This therapy involves the patient using his imagination to picture himself having an erection. It is essentially the same as visualizing having an erection, except that it requires a little bit more effort on the part of the patient. If you decide that this type of treatment might be appropriate for you, make sure to consult with your doctor about whether or not it is an appropriate treatment for you because there are a lot of things you need to consider before you make a treatment decision.

As you can see, there are several different types of medications and treatments that can be used to treat erection problems. While there is no one ‘perfect’ treatment for ED, there are several different options available to you. If you are interested in trying to treat your ED with medications or other types of therapy, be sure to consult with your doctor about the best course of treatment for you.
